Ulrika Spacek impressed us with their record of lite jangling and psychedelic tracing paper earlier this year -- think of them as a Russian doll out of which Deerhunter spurt out of which Broadcast do. Here's a new 7", why not, and fortunately it's chock full of new material, offering a new single "Everything, All The Time" that does the usual fuzz by osmosis. There's also a cover of the Velvet Underground on the b-side because that's just what you have to do when you're a band.

- Everything, All The Time by Ulrika Spacek
Alas I review this with the awful new Slaves screaming away in the background. Not this one's fault and glad they turned the guitars up in the intro just for situations like this. Once they've got the Sonic Youth bit out of the way the dynamics change entirely into a Broadcast -like piece of psychedelic electronic pop. The tune isn't killer but those guitars are so nasty that they more than compensate. Quite a krauty piece as well with it's repetitive Neu ish drums so all the ingredients are in place for the sort of thing that goes down nicely here at the towers.
Overleaf there's a version of the Velvet Underground's 'Lady Godiva's Operation' which is an interesting thing to do but I'm being too lazy to walk over to the stereo to play it.
